Luggage free hiking in the Graubünden mountains

Klosters - Arosa - Lenzerheide

 

This independent hiking tour of 4 or 7 nights combines the three well known resorts of Klosters, Arosa and Lenzerheide. Even in Roman times, people were using the Alpine crossings over the Strela Pass and the Urdenfürggli. Today, you can enjoy the spectacular views from well maintained paths and wonder at the diversity of flora and fauna. The hiking times vary depending on how much you use the cable cars - 4½ hours to 6 hours on your two hiking days. You'll be hiking unencumbered in the finest corner of Graubünden, as you will have your luggage transferred for you.

The Davos-Klosters Inclusive Card and the Arosa All-Inclusive Card will be provided by your hotel and cover many of the mountain railway and cable car journeys mentioned.
